Our First Christmas with Emma

Our first Christmas with Emma was wonderful! She was excited about the gifts Santa had brought. She loves her kitchen, and has cooked us breakfast and dinner today, and made us lots of coffee. She loves to play on the computer, which isn't good, so she got a little one of her own to play on. She also got a Leap Frog Little Touch and books, a Hooked on phonics smart stick, a Doodle Pro, baby dolls, and lots more. Angie, the wonderful woman who loves and cares for her while we work, and her husband, Mark, gave her lots of pocketbooks, and jewelry. She loved it, and wanted to carry them all at the same time.

At Maw and Paws she got a really neat riding toy, a baby doll, and lots of other gifts today. She has been a trooper - playing hard, smiling a lot for pictures, and having a really good day.

I know she doesn't yet realize the importance of today, and the significance of the greatest gift, the gift of God's son Jesus, the reason we celebrate this day. But, one day, she will understand, and our prayer is that she will receive His gift to her of eternal life in Heaven. We are so thankful for Emma this year, and the privilege God has given us to be her parents and to raise her to know him in a personal relationship and to share His love with others.

Here are some pictures from our first Christmas with our newest little one, Emma Grace SiQi...
